Java and geomapapp


http://www.geomapapp.org

Geomapapp is something I want to run. I installed jdk-8u20 - the only version I could find to download for slackware-current, and I get this sort of error
Code:
bash-4.3$ java ./GeoMapApp.jar
Error: Could not find or load main class ..GeoMapApp.jar
bash-4.3$ javac ./GeoMapApp.jar
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: com/sun/tools/javac/Main : Unsupported major.minor version 52.0

bash-4.3$ javaws ./GeoMapApp.jar
bash-4.3$ Error: A JNI error has occurred, please check your installation and try again

Is my java too new? Suggestions?

For a start, you're running "java" incorrectly. You need to pass the -jar option when specifying JARs, i.e.

java -jar GeoMapApp.jar

Thanks. I spotted that later.

I have Fedora 20 in a VM and it runs in that, so I can get a look at it there. Now I just have to figure it out!
